Though still relatively new to the world of early years I can honestly say it's become such a passion and I'm so happy I made the decision to join such a fulfilling and rewarding career. In the rush of our busy daily routines we can sometimes forget how amazing it is to see the young children under our care develop and mature throughout their early childhood. However, it is so important that we get the early childhood education right! That's why I joined the Early Years Network to help and inspire those just like me who work with young children everyday and want to make a difference.
Being able to access The Early Years Network training videos has given me the confidence to do my role to the best of my ability. With easy to understand videos, I feel that I am constantly learning something new, that in turn, allows me to provide children with the best possible learning opportunities.
